New on the blog! I got tired of whining about how totally awful this part of renovating Olivebridge Cottage was, so I embellished. it's still mostly true. Link in profile!
sparklepants : It's all fun and games until somebody gets hantavirus. Hilarious but horrible! Good luck!
modernhaus : I like it like this. Bayou Chic๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜

New on the blog! I'm all about that DIY life which is why @hgtvmagpromo and @tdbank_us asked me to make a presentation about it for the #TDrollingreno. As an unintended side-effect of being around the event, I'm kinda considering a home equity line of credit for myself? I know so little about financing options which makes me feel like a jerk because all I do is talk about renovating ("idk, ya save, ya spend, ya use whatever you can that's free or cheap?"), but this option sounds maybe good? I'm curious to hear what others think! link in profile. btw, I finallllly finished building the raised planting beds in my backyard! they need to be stained, filled, and planted and then this bitch is gonna have fresh veggies all summer. MARK MY WORDS

sewnmeadows : @danielkanter you know exactly what I'm talking about.
danielkanter : @sewnmeadows I kinda don't, but ok? btw, based on what I've read, modern PT lumber is fine for raised beds...some reputable sources saying that the wood doesn't leach at all and others saying that any leeching is so minimal that it's nearly undetectable, safe for edibles, and has no effect on plant growth or health. I can live with that, pretty sure.
sewnmeadows : @danielkanter if that's how you want to believe. I don't buy it. But I also don't pander to big box. Enjoy!
danielkanter : @sewnmeadows nothing to do with big can buy the same stuff at nearly any local lumber yard. and yes, it's what I'm believing based on research and empirical data, which I tend to weigh more heavily than a weirdly aggressive series of Instagram comments. ¯\_(ใƒ„)_/¯

I luh my papi โœจโค๏ธโœจ (but srsly, working with a contractor who might give you shit about using all salvaged wood for moldings but does it anyway = priceless)
mitchmitchie : Swoon ๐Ÿ˜
danielkanter : @mitchmitchie sure is! 2.0 edition!
nlttavares : Try incorporating all old doors....;). 15 years and getting closer to door nobs on a couple of doors..just not the biggest priority..the yard always wins.
instantsdelouise : Olivebridge !!! Oh ! I want to know all about this !

BLOGGED! I did a mantel makeover challenge for the folks at @angieslist that I'm pretty damn proud of! We stripped layers of paint from these incredible century-old tiles, ripped out 1970s built-ins, repaired original plaster walls, painted, and added built-in storage from salvaged lumber. Go check out the link in profile, and then the links to the full post and the contest page on Angie's List!
lizzielivingpretty : Wow! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
lisashelbyhayward : ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
jessicajenkinsfieryheart : amazing! when you revealed that tile I could not imagine what would make it work - that wall colour really makes it. Well done!!
thethingis_iwillloveyouagain : the walls turned out gorgeous!

Hey! Join me tomorrow at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, NY where I'll be doing a presentation and Q&A about #DIY with @hgtvmagpromo and @tdbank_us! First one at 11 and one at noon! Hope you see you there! A little caulk, wood filler, primer, and paint and this almost entirely salvaged-wood built-in is gonna fool you into thinking I'm some kind of a carpenter! #rollingrenovation
